Choose the Check Organic modules that will benefit your supply chain the most. Contact us for your customized offer and specific data queries. These modules include:

  • Check Organic Search:

    The SEARCH service of Check Organic supports you to find potential suppliers in a certain country selling a certain crop/livestock/product. With the Check Organic SEARCH service questions such as “Is supplier X currently organic certified and in good standing?” will be answered in real-time without the need to call certifiers to be more certain of a supplier’s status. It also helps you to overcome the challenge of determining a supplier’s current certification based on a dated paper certificate. 

    The data repository comprises data sources from several countries around the globe and currently holds about 150,000 certification data sets. USDA NOP supplier data is already available here, it is updated automatically every 24 hours via interface from the USDA Website. Other certification bodies like Organic Standard UA decided to upload their certification data via excel upload. The Check Organic data repository is growing constantly. However, the search function can display certification data from any other certification, such as Fairtrade certified, EU Organic, etc. – this is just a matter of data integration.

    As long as crop and acreage data is available from certifiers, the Check Organic SEARCH delivers detailed information on field level.

  • List Management:

    Managing supplier lists to guarantee integrity throughout the supply chain is a challenging task for commodity buyers.

    Supply chains are often complex and there can be a lack of information with sub-suppliers remaining unknown due to issues of commercial confidentiality. This lack of transparency can lead to a risk for buyers. Commodity buyers therefore attempt to differentiate between more and less reliable and trusted suppliers to create a stable supplier base. Yet, buyers can find themselves in situations where they need to quickly replace supply that has become unfeasible, partially because certifiers dont pro-actively inform buyers of changes in certification status. Check Organic is a global integrity platform that provides various tools to help buyers keep current with the certification status of all their suppliers along the supply chain.

    With the Supplier List Management (VERIFICATION) tool it is easy to:

    • create and manage preferred supplier lists
    • monitor the certification status of the whole supply chain daily
    • select new suppliers for inclusion on the preferred supplier list
    • verify certification status on operation level and on crop level
    • prepare internal inspections and brief internal inspectors

    With the supplier list management tool, buyers have all relevant information available at a glance, reducing time and cost needed to verify current certification status. An automated alert system sends notifications anytime a certification status changes. The tool visualizes the certification status with a traffic light system, which is intuitive and allows for key information to be absorbed quickly by anyone. Green means Go, red stands for Stop and yellow indicates that there might be a need for clarification.

    Not only supplier lists can be managed in Check Organic, but also client lists.

    All lists can be exported to MS Excel for editing purposes outside of Check Organic if needed.
